Clarke Quay

Where you can always find exchange students

Clarke Quay is the nightlife capital of Singapore, shopping center and river walk all combined into a perfect little place. I go there about once or twice a week, and usually we just hangout on the bridge. Its hard to explain Clarke Quay, because it gives off such a cool vibe while you spend time there. It's a place where internationals from all over the world hang out, talk about our travels and home countries, places we want to visit, and eventually become really good friends.

There is a bridge that crosses the river that lands in the middle of Clarke Quay, and we all sit along the sides of the bridge and just talk about everything. As an exchange student, I always know someone from NUS on the bridge, and usually can recognize a bunch of people from around Singapore. When we go out we usually meet at the bridge and determine as a group where and what we should all do for that night. Clarke Quay also has restaurants, shops, fountains, and it is all lit up with beautiful colors. Each building is painted a different color than the last, and there are hundreds of places to sit and watch the river.
